Bush Tracker Course

Can you feed your family using primitive methods? Track your quarry, use projectile weapons, prepare your food and cook it.

This is a Level 5 course designed to encourage the participants to use minimal kit for 3-days and to hone skills in tracking and bushcraft.

Each stage is designed to simulate tracking up to an animal, stalking it, shooting it (simulated) and preparing it for the pot.

Participants will be reminded how to prepare game hygienically and will also have the opportunity to learn how to fire a projectile weapon safely and accurately. The latter will simulate ‘a kill’. Of course previously learned tracking skills will come to the fore.
